Setting the pace

It is Saturday. The best thing is that the sun is shining, the sky is blue, the clouds are puffy, and the cat was nice and warm! This morning, I woke hurting, slept some more, now still hurting, but not in the same places as yesterday, so I ... Read more
Five days down

Whew! This has been one of those marathon weeks - running from one appointment to the next. Other than one allergist appointment for an injection next week, and calling the hospital on Tuesday to get the surgery schedule for Wednesday, I do not ... Read more

Every day is always so full of stuff to do: Clean up, eat up, work out, do stuff, check on deadlines, pay bills. Today was just one of those days when my invisible list is getting checked off. (This is the mental list I forgot to write.) Mo... Read more

Intuition, mistakes, and steps in the right direction

Funny thing, logging your food daily almost becomes an intuitive thing. I seem to really be knowing just what I should have, and need throughout the day. There are some days I may not "write" it all down in the log til late, sometimes I jot it d... Read more

It is the LAST day of February! Unbelievable! Two months down already. This morning I was awakened by my husband waking up my son, did I tell you I was a light sleeper? So, I am still really tired. The weather is gray, cold and rainy, and there ... Read more

One of my "little" projects before my surgery is to straighten a few shelves in the computer room, and sort through a few boxes. Today I tackled it. Two shelves that had gone crooked because the little pegs that hold them up fell out are now sta... Read more

Today - I started the day not sleeping, so once I got that done, I put in 34 minutes of PT stretches including the new ab toning routine the therapist gave me this week. I had every intention to go on the wii fit plus balance board until I turne... Read more
I am empowered!
Friday, February 25, 2011      6 comments

Taking all things into consideration, I am really psyched up and empowered! Really, I truly am! In September 2009 the last time I was officially in physical therapy I took hold of myself and began the journey to where I am. I knew that waiting f... Read more

As in just another day in paradise... Today was my pre-op visit to my primary care physician. On her scale, it was no surprise, that I weighed more than last time, though I have lost a couple since December anyway. My doctor said it was typ... Read more
Pre-op physical therapy consultation

This afternoon I met with one of the physical therapists. Once he understood that I was wanting to maintain as much mobility and flexibility as I can post surgery, he had me show him my routine. There's only a couple things in my morning PT stre... Read more

If... you couldn't walk tomorrow, would you miss it? If... you couldn't keep up with your fitness due to illness or injury, would you miss it? Would you let it get you down and discouraged? If... you had to start over, do you bel... Read more

Yay! I got to bed at a relatively decent hour (for me that is) and was nearly asleep by 1 a.m.! Then this morning, I heard the rumblings of the gears of the little Buick making its way up the hill, and like the cats, awoke to greet my husband, a... Read more
Feeling like a fuddy duddy
Monday, February 21, 2011      6 comments

I just re-read my previous blog, and it IS extremely quiet to the point of boring myself. It reads like a journal entry, which it really is. It makes me sound like a fuddy duddy - despite the fact I did my fitness - it is just so low key, and we... Read more

It's President's Day - so no snail mail (waiting for a package) My sister-in-law called and said she got the lap blanket I made for her for Christmas (belated) - it sounds like she likes it. Trouble sleeping - but I did get 6.5 hours a... Read more
